This follows from the government resolution on measures to implement the investment program of Uzbekistan for the first quarter of 2024.

Earlier in June 2021, the Metropol Group, whose founder is Daniyar Kamilov, the son of the former Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov, bought the former NSS building in Tashkent for 210 billion soums, US$ 20 million.

The hotel will have 164 rooms, including presidential suites and apartments.

Let us remind you that the former building of the National Security Service (formerly the KGB), privatized by the Metropol Group, began to be demolished in July 2023. The building was built in the 1950s. At first there was the Central City Clinic of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, then the KGB of the Uzbek SSR was located, then the National Security Service. In 2018, the NSS was transformed into the State Security Service and moved to a new location.
